The combined entity will be called Electriq Power Holdings Inc and trade under the ELIQ ticker symbol. Alongside the US$495 million pro-forma pre-money equity valuation, the transaction will also provide Electriq Power with up to US$125 million in cash proceeds.

The company, founded in 2014, provides intelligent energy storage and management solutions for homes and small businesses. It claims to have an innovative go-to-market model that makes solar plus storage accessible to all socio-economic groups.

Energy-Storage.news recently reported on one of its projects that was aimed at low-to-moderate income residents in Washington DC, while more recently it has won contracts to roll out its energy storage solution – the lithium iron phosphate-based (LFP) PowerPod 2 – to homes in Santa Barbara and Puerto Rico in partnership with local utilities.

Mike Lawrie, chief executive officer, TLGA said: “Our proposed merger comes at the right time to address the rapidly growing demand in the residential solar energy storage market, technology development and innovation, consumer and provider demand, and government policy and environmental initiatives.”

The companies said the transaction delivers on incentives contained within recent federal policy moves like the Inflation Reduction Act.
